Nevada Considers Restrictions on Reptile Collectors

Nevada is considering imposing restrictions on reptile collectors after figures show nearly a half-million creatures have been removed from the desert state in the past 30 years. All the states bordering Nevada prohibit unlimited commercial collection of reptiles, but as of now the Silver State has set no limits. Nevada is weighing recommendations that include a blanket ban of reptile collection, or limiting commercial collection based on species, breeding season and geography. A blanket ban would not prevent hobbyists from collecting reptiles for themselves as pets, but would forbid the sale and barter of captured reptiles.
